Overview

Real caving for everybody! Easy, intermediate and technical day trips through fabulous, deserted caves. Educational too - we run presentations on local geology and archaeology. We can supply you with all equipment and protective clothing - bring a towel and T-shirt. Dangerous? No! We have an excellent safety record which makes Kuching Caving as safe as shopping. "The best thing we did in Kuching" is the reaction from most of our guests. Western managed. Established 2007.

I went on the Big Spaces tour and was blown away by the caverns, crevasses, stalactite and stalagmites tucked away in the limestone hills outside Kuching. To make one thing very clear - these are not show caves. You will get muddy. You will get...More
